I'm very excited to be joining Demarest Public Schools this year as a speech language pathologist! I will be working with students at both Luther Lee Emerson School and Demerest Middle School. Along with seeing students individually and in small groups, I will also be infusing into the classroom, allowing for greater integration of speech and language goals within the curriculum. I will also be completeing speech and language evaluations for the district.
I receieved a BA from Sarah Lawrence College with a concentration in child development and neuropsychology, before pursuing a degree in Speech Langauge Pathology from New York Medical College. My professional interests include language development, the relationship between music and language, and play-based learning. Before entering the world of speech and language I was a professional musician. As a result, I like to bring music into my sessions.
Peronally, I grew up and currently live in Bergen County with my husband and daughter. In our free time we like to play music, cook and eat new foods, and spend time with family and friends.
